Closed Circuit News
Have you noticed? At the time when news media around us is full of dummy stories about race tensions, woke crap and leftist initiatives, we begin to live in our own news universes? Those of us who choose not to open the pages of NY Times, Washington Post and other, leftist propaganda-infused publications; those of us who forgo Fox, CNN, ABC and other news channels, we begin developing our own closed spaces of information that make sense of the world around us.
They want us to read “their” news only. News is valuable product, pushed onto us by Big Tech. It reflects views of those who write and edit, but also select top headlines; news to be included in Yahoo, Google, Facebook and others. This is what flashes in our gadgets, pop-ups in ads, leads us to articles on major news publishers’ sites.
It’s all very smooth, thought-out and convenient; a constant digital diet relating to politics, economics, sports, entertainment and health. If you don’t read one section, you read another. It has always been this way. We don’t much think about this world around us. They expediently bring it to our consumption. Someone else, but not you, puts together this menu. We need not have to do anything, not even think.

White and Black
It looks like this interesting text might have been originally written in Russian and translated into English. We received it from someone who reads this website. The original author – one Mr. Yuri Kolker, a Russian poet; born in the USSR back in 1946, now living in London. We looked him up online. You can find his short bio here. We never heard of him, but the subjects he addresses are directly linked to what is taking place in America. In our view this is highly thought-provoking, sharp and extremely politically incorrect perspective on the world gone mad with ‘racism’ and ‘anti-racism’.

The Other Side of Covid. Part II
Read Part I here.
The political implications are vast. Governments everywhere, by definition, are “suppression machines”. Some are more benign that others. But the nature of every government is to rule by intimidation, force, by limiting our freedoms and setting new rules given the opportunity. Covid opened those gates of opportunity wide. “Observe the curfew” took place in NYC early in pandemic. “Wear a mask”, “wear two at a time” or “wear three”. “Wear a mask at home”. “Wear a mask even if you’ve been vaccinated”. Sounds familiar? “Stay home. It’s for your own good”. “Don’t congregate even in private”. Obtain a “24-hour permit” to visit a doctor or go to buy food. Major fines if you don’t comply. We heard some of this is going on in Europe. Fortunately, most of the USA was spared this craziness for now, but who’s to say it cannot happen here?
Given a chance to implement and enforce new laws, governments are very reluctant to let go of the new powers. This is their nature. Repealing new rules and regulations down the road can be very hard. They stay on the books and can be used against us anytime. Some states and their governors begin to realize what is going on. They are asserting state powers in the attempt to resist uncontrolled central authority coming into their jurisdictions, by enacting state laws to protect its citizens against Washington virus dictate. It is too early in the game; many “red states” are yet to realize ”what a friend we have in Biden” and his administration. But it is going in that direction, slowly but surely.(more…)

The Other Side of Covid. Part I
In the “Modern Doctor Faust, a.k.a. Doctor Fauci, et al.” essay we addressed medical and touched upon some political issues surrounding the Covid virus.
There are many other facets of pandemics that affect our lives, no matter where we live. Beside medical, these are economical, political, bioresearch and industrial implications. But also psychological, ethical and interpersonal dimensions we all have to live with. Some are local and others are global. Each one is a major subject and we cannot possibly cover them all in-depth. We’ll try to give you a vivid overview instead.
Life had slowed down considerably and became more expensive. That goes for products we buy, services we use and the food we purchase or consume in restaurants. There has to be an explanation for all of it somewhere. Our guess is that there had been major disruptions in various supply chains. Companies, large and small, have been impacted by inability of suppliers to deliver on time.(more…)
